Thirty Things You Don't Know About Me

#26 - I love Halloween! But that is because we usually average about 600 trick-or-treaters at our house every year.

I know it sounds crazy but Halloween is a big deal in South Pasadena every year. Our streets are wide and flat and it's a very safe neighborhood. Personally, I think the whole town just gives out good candy.

The night starts at about 5:30 with the really small kids and their parents (who are all adorable in their costumes) and finally ends at about 9:30 with the half-costumed high schoolers looking for candy. It's not the kind of night where you can relax. Unless you are sitting by the front door within reach of the doorknob. Because the door bell rings about every four minutes.

We painted pumpkins on the last day of my Ventura workshop. Although some of these aren't completed, check out these great paintings!

What are you doing for Halloween this year?

Next week I am releasing my 2015 workshop schedule. I am coming to Cape Cod, Atlanta and Richmond in 2015! Plus you can paint and stay with me in Ventura, CA at the beach house! Click here for more information!

I am also offering Monday Online Studio painting classes beginning October 2014! Join me each month as we paint boats, roosters, glass, beach scenes, umbrellas, etc. with a palette knife! Click here to find out more.
